America's Best Cities
No. 19 San Juan, P.R. (tie)
Between their striking good looks (rated No. 3 most attractive) and that disarming accent, the locals in the sunny Puerto Rico capital apparently made readers blush. After ranking near the top in almost all of the food categories last year, San Juan slipped a bit this year, though it still earned top 10 accolades for its coffee, ethnic fare, and roadside cuisine. One undeniable plus: the weather. Voters loved the idea of escaping here over the winter holidays and also declared it the No. 3 city for spring break.
